Our beloved husband, father and son, Roderick "Rod" James McMahon of Willis, TX passed away January 20, 2021. He was born in Long Island, NY on October 12, 1943. Rod graduated from Havlock High School in North Carolina and received a Bachelor of Business degree from Memphis State University. He joined the US Air Force and while stationed at Ramstein AFB Germany, he met his future wife Jamice Gaygan McMahon. They were married on November 11, 1967. In 1987, Rod and Jamice founded North American Metals Inc.; a family venture that continues to thrive to this day. It was one of his many passions in life. The foundation of which centered around relationship building that encompassed employees and customers first, and equally as important, vendors and competitor/colleagues. He was a leader, a mentor, a counselor, and most importantly a friend to all. Rod carried through his personal and business life an open-door policy to all that knocked on it. A kind and most generous soul; a character that one could only hope to emulate. 

Rod loved life, his other passions included his family, friends, shooting sports, all things dogs, and his enduring and fervent support of local law enforcement. Rod never met a stranger and was first to lend a hand to ANYONE in need. 

He is survived by his mother, Victoria Askew, his wife of 53 years Jamice McMahon, his son Rome McMahon and wife Kate and children Law and Blake of Austin, TX; his son Troy McMahon and Ashley and children Ty, Trace, Tatum and TJ of Montgomery, TX; his brother Vincent K.
